Hidden behind some of Amsterdam's stately canal houses are the secret gardens of the 17th-century. Every June for a couple of days they open their doors and for €15 everyone is invited.
There is something magical about being allowed into this world, a world you would never know was there, it's almost like stepping back into Amsterdam's Golden Age. And the icing on the cake? You also get a peak into these incredible canal houses as you walk through them to get into their secret gardens.
